What is Katapult Future Fest? 

Katapult Future Fest is an impact focused festival in Norway that explores how exponential technologies, consciousness and impact investing can be used to transcend the UN Sustainable Development Goals and build a future we want to live in.

Are you...

  • optimistic about the UN sustainability goals, and wish to contribute towards a better future?
  • eager to have conversations with experts within their fields?
  • intrigued by the idea of building a company that can do good in the world and make money at the same time?

Only when we are aware of our decisions can we make a positive impact and change the world.

Community Dinners

To make the world a better place - we need collaboration. Let’s start with sharing a meal!
On May 15th we are bringing people together to connect with like-minded KFF participants by sharing a family-style meal in an informal setting in Oslo.


Over 50+ members of the Oslo community have been kind enough to open their homes and invite all KFF-attendees to a private dinner. When you purchase a ticket to Katapult Future Fest you will be invited to share an intimate dinner while discussing pressing issues. That means over 480 motivated people collaborating all across Oslo!

We believe that the groundwork for change can be discussed over something as fundamental as dinner.

Food - Oslo’s Best Eats

Besides the unbelievably awesome community dinners, it wouldn’t be a festival without food and drinks! Katapult Future Fest has local favorites with delicious options that are friendly for everyone. Our team has put together a guide for food and drinks here.
